Press was unfair to Trump conservatives. Now Day wants their views?

Wow! Well, as the old wives used to say, "wonders never cease," The Day paper wants to hear from conservatives − "Are you conservative? Don't trust the news? Share your views with The Day."

Really? Seriously? At least some of us can trot out the occasional letter, God forbid you anger liberals in the online comments section just by being factual − you are banned. Mentioning someone's thought process as idiocy? That is a no-no.

Some folks (OK, liberals) just do not like their thoughts being labeled as idiocy. We conservatives have been called worse in the comments section, especially if you are a supporter of former President Trump − "whoa Nelly!"

This invitation by The Day is interesting to say the least as we fair-election folk, still reeling from defeat in a specious 2021 election win by President Joe Biden − who granted only limited media access. We witnessed a biased press corps display the worst behavior toward a sitting president in our history, even as that press corps was granted unlimited access.

That said, we still believe in personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values, and a strong national defense. The role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals and emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
